Honestly it was completely due to burn out. I’m done. I did collect a bunch of sap and ran it through the RO machine. Probably obtained enough sap/concentrate to get 1/2 a gallon of birch syrup. I just couldn’t find the time and it’s no longer cold enough for the sap to keep for long periods of time.
So there is much more to consider during this time of year when it comes to birch sap.
Going to cut my losses, clean the buckets and put everything away and work on prepping a better way to retain my heat so I can boil faster next year.
